Though I’m more of a wine drinker than a beer drinker, leaning toward the Cabernets and Pinot Noirs as the weather turns cooler, I feel lame ordering the house red at most bars. Thank god it’s stout season.

It was a coffee stout at the Triumph Brewing Company that won me over, but they’re not the only ones offering deliciously creamy stouts. Next time you want to order a beer for the girl at the other end of the bar, consider…

It’s a classic and, this year, Guinness celebrates its 250th anniversary. To mark the occasion, they’ve created a limited-edition stout.

Samuel Adams. Another classic, and a purveyor of several stouts. Mostly, though, I’m excited to try this cream stout I picked up from Stew Leonard’s earlier today. I have to wait until tomorrow, though, when I hold my weekly So You Think You Can Dance viewing.

Oh my god, this beer is not available in NJ, and that makes me sad, if only because its label perfectly reflects my state of being when left alone with a coffee pot for too long. Here’s where it is available. You should check out their other stouts as well.

What am I missing out on? Bonus points if you can point me in the direction of a good coffee stout! I’m new to the stout scene, and eager to learn more.
